My personal sailing career


From the Alaskan inlets to the bayous of the south, I've sailed, tugged, towed, crabbed, worked cargo, supply, and research vessels. I know a few ins and outs of the industry, good and bad. Assisting friends and family for years with USCG licensing paperwork has developed into a business for me. Let my experience in the Maritime industry upgrade your career to its full potential. With our career guidance we help direct you to your next upgrade.

Message from Margaret

With 16 years in the Maritime industry I am taking time off from the shipping world to raise my family, and help other mariners avoid licensing struggles. I now assist Mariners through their licensing renewals, upgrades, license originals, finding classes, keeping them updated on the latest changes, and more.  I am passionate about making this process easier for mariners facing the seemingly endless forms and classes now required by the USCG and NMC. Let me help make your next licensing experience easy and relaxing and quick.


Margaret Strozyk-Hayes

Whatever your USCG licensing needs, we can help you. From filling out out forms, assistance with the STCW, and handling communications with the NMC.
